It was a battle of wills at Idle Hour this past Tuesday as Destiny and Determination locked horns in a wild and furious clash of quizzical supremacy. With 32 teams vying for the top spot, and veterans and newbies evenly matched, it was bound to be a showstopper. 

In our early rounds, Furious Jumpers made a furious showing as they took and early lead and secured their spot with expertly executed doubles and a strategic feint in the fifth. They wanted that win…but they weren’t the only ones. 

Birthday Barbie, a new group with an unquenchable thirst for victory, charged into the fray with wild abandon. They grew neck and neck with our veteran winners. 

During our drinking round, we asked our teams to come up with pick up lines utilizing non-traditional dairy products. 720 of Emotions took the win, though we are unable to reprint it here…as this is a family show. 

As the rounds ended the show drew to a close, it came down to the final round to find our winner. While Furious Jumpers and Birthday Barbie put up amazing numbers, it was Trivia Rodrigo coming in with a clutch double right a the end to seal their victory.

How can you not get excited when 24 teams arrive into a barrel-shaped battlefield with quiz on their minds? It’s King Trivia at Idle Hour, the only place to go for the best show in NoHo. 

The game began with a monster tie at the top of the board, and nearly 60% of all teams represented in that golden spot. That shrank slightly in Round Two as only six teams managed to guess all the pictures correctly: The Bugle, Quizzie McGuire, Drink-182, The Georgia 19, Full Send, Denim King Josh.

But then came the Denim King. A single former trivia host using all of his knowledge and experience to navigate the war zone that is the kingdom of trivia. We started to wonder if there really was a new king in town! His doubles jumped him higher and higher, with only a few teams keeping pace. 

Rumpleforeskin managed to steal the show for a moment during the drinking round, edging out the crowd to win the coveted free shots. Sadly, those drinks wouldn’t give them the strength to best the competition. 

Denim kept his lead in Round Five, but there is a saying in King Trivia: Doubles giveth…and Doubles taketh away. In Round Six, with a slip of the answer, Quizzy McGuire had the opening to take the lead. It was all down to the final round. 

Now Bugle had kept up so far, falling behind in Round Five only to tie in Round Six. Round Seven could decide everything, depending on the doubles…but it ended in a tie! Quizzy could have taken it all, but chose the cautious path. Denim and Bugle faced off for the final showdown. 

 

In a tie-breaker worthy of an entire Netflix special, Bugle took the final point and won the game. 

 

We ended the night with Bugle, Denim King Josh, and Quizzy McGuire!

A rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but a trivia show that’s NOT King Trivia just can’t be as epic. Idle Hour was alive and kicking with quiztastic energy as we welcomed a slightly lower temperature into our humble, barrel-shaped home. With a lean 16 teams, we got down to quizness. 

Round One led to a strong opening start for Breakfast All Day, The Furious Jumpers, Drink-182, Quiz-ney princesses. But it was Montana in Round Two taking the early lead. They dropped down as Breakfast All Day caught a double in Round Three, only to see Montana out on top again at the end of the first half. It was a chaotic show so far, and still anyone’s game!

For our drinking round, we chose to honor International Cat Day buy having our teams name every jellical cat from the international hit CATS. Though they couldn’t name them all, the winner with most insane musical knowledge was Kingbeez. 

In the latter half of the game, a new challenger rose up from the middle. Furious Jumpers were in no mood for playing games (that didn’t involve winning). They through down double after double, leapfrogging the competition as they charged toward the lead. In the final round, it all came down…to a single point. 

 

We ended the night with a big win. Furious Jumpers, Montana, and Chonky!
